I discovered LJ was down over the weekend. And even though I've been struggling to be online of late, I felt that jonesy itch when I couldn't sign on. Made me think: What if it all went poof? What if the backups were irrecoverable? Sure I have all my fic on my hard drive but I certainly didn't have all the other entries. And I didn't have downloads or printouts of anyone else's journal either. Years of peoples' lives gone like the Library at Alexandria...

Here's to the resurrection!

Well, one of the reasons that I haven't been around is that we leave for synchro sectionals in Fort Collins, CO in a week and a half. I'm always at the rink or the gym. And I'm always in pain; something always hurts, usually multiple areas of my body.

Right now, the program's a disaster. And I'm part of that. The coach had to re-choreograph a section of the routine because I couldn't make a smooth transition. She put me in that spot because she had faith that I'm a strong enough skater to make it and I messed it up 80% of the time. *hangs head* She's my personal coach as well as the team coach so it reflects on her whenever I fail.

She dropped me around the time I started LJ and has only recently agreed to start working with me again. Because what did I do when she dropped me? I went to the rink less, hung about LJ and gained 20 lbs. when I had 30 lbs. that I needed to lose. I've lost 19 of those lbs. but I've been dipping into the comfort foods lately and have been bobbing along at the same weight for a month. Funny, but my mental image is stuck at the me of 27 and I'm continually shocked by the fat old lady in the mirror. I just forget and, boom, there she is.

So, long story short, LJ made me fat. You can actually *gain* weight sitting on your butt staring at a computer screen. Somehow the AMA doesn't consider my index finger constantly hitting 'refresh' as exercise. Who knew? *g*

Random wackiness: Mr. Romany joked the other day that there's fanfic about everything. Probably even Power Rangers. Power Rangers is the five-year old Romanita's fandom right now. What can I say about the many incarnations of the show? It's purposefully campy and cheesy. The plotlines are thin, the violence is Disneyfied, and the acting is meh. The show purposefully plays down romance since the intended demographic is 5-8 year olds.

So what do I find when I google "power rangers fanfiction"? Power Rangers fanfiction. Most of it's gen, and what little I read, gloriously bad. Glorious in that written by a 13-year old who may actually become a good writer in a few years way.

But then what to my wondering eyes did appear? A listing for the Power Rangers Erotica webring. Hee! I'm almost tempted to join webring, submit my age statement, to read it. *boggles*

Yes, apparently, there's fanfiction about everything. *g*

Birthdays!: Happy (belated) birthday to uberaeryn, sweptawaybayou, and (today) to kantayra, makd.
